The bloatware is bad, but easily removable. Asus allows unlocking of the bootloader, and if you spend 5 minutes researching rooting, and a custom ROM, this phone (already fast) is pure speed and awesome. Camera itself is on par with today's standard (and if you buy a phone purely for this, sell it, and your computer and purchase a DSLR camera), great storage, and device/network connectivity. To the nay-sayers, learn to properly use technology instead of whining.
BTW, CM13 is Marshmallow 6.0.1 of fluffy pleasure.

Stay away from Asus mobile phones. My zenfone 2 ze551ml got ota update on 3rd May and since then i'm not able to use it. Wifi is hanged, its restarting every 2 minutes. This is really annoying. Many users got the same issue.

For the SIM1, it's really weird except if you have a wrong model (there are a lot of variants depending of the regions: China, India, North-America, International).
sim 2 not working when i use IDEA sim card (India)...and sim card 2 not access internet. simtoolkit 2 not available in my Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML. clear this bug and give me new update for this. Give a new Bug report app for Asus phone to direct send any bug or problem..... please solve my problem. I can't use internet in sim 2 or not use both sim at same time......please solve my issues...
This phone is compatible with Cyanogen ROM i found... this is nice for people who like this mod like the One Plus series.
